Ummm, I believe I was asking in reference to a specific residence that was for sale. It's been so long now that I cannot even try to remember which one. I know the cost depends on where. Forget I asked, this was not helpful to my request. But, you can say WHY realtors don't put the costs in the MLS listings. That seems like a waste of time for people who may not know about them. If they refuse HOA fees, then wouldn't you rather they not bug you about it? Oh wait, it is a lure to get them to call, right?
